Alien: Covenant

Alien: Covenant
  • 2017
  • US
  • 123 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ridley Scott
  • Written by: Michael Green
  • Cast: Michael Fassbender, Demián Bichir, Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, Jussie Smollett, Amy Seimetz, Carmen Ejogo, Callie Hernandez

The spaceship Covenant ends up on an unknown planet littered with little egg things, which can’t be good. The latest in the franchise is basically an excuse for Scott’s fantastic visuals and a series of more or less ingenious variations on grisly death, although some will enjoy the spectacle of Fassbender kissing himself.

A Dog's Purpose

A Dog's Purpose
  • 2017
  • US
  • 100 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Lasse Hallström
  • Cast: Josh Gad, Dennis Quaid, Peggy Lipton

A wild puppy named Toby (Gad) is euthanised and reborn as a farm dog in the 60s, and then dies only to come back as a police dog, which then takes a bullet…and so on. Painfully manipulative cornball drama with laboured slapstick, romantic clichés and heavy-handed lessons, a high-cholesterol dog’s dinner.

The Promise

The Promise
  • 2016
  • Spain/US
  • 134 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Terry George
  • Cast: Christian Bale, Oscar Isaac, Shohreh Aghdashloo

Mikael (Isaac) is a poor Armenian medical student in Constantinople in 1914, who falls in love with the vivacious Ana (Le Bon), except that she’s already carrying on with the dashing American journalist Chris (Bale). Epic, handsomely cast but overcooked historical romance set against the backdrop of the Turkish genocide of Armenians.
